Leroy Sane has claimed the Premier League Player of the Month award after a sparkling performance in the month of October.

Manchester City won all three of their league matches that month and Sane was a big reason why, claiming a goal and an assist in all three of his side's matches.

Harry Kane had won the award for September while Sadio Mane took home the prize in August.

October continued a bright start to the league season for the Germany international, as he has now scored six goals and added five assists in 11 appearances this season for City. He's also contributed a pair of assists in the Champions League and two goals in the Carabao Cup

The 21-year-old Sane has already eclipsed his league goal total from 2016-17, as he scored just five times in the Premier League last season.

The month was kind for City honorees as the club's fine form also brought Pep Guardiola his second straight Manager of the Month award

The club, who are eight points clear of rivals Manchester United at the Premier League summit, travel to Leicester City on Saturday, before returning to action in the Champions League at home to Feyenoord.
